The mobile ad hoc network is a fast growing research due to their flexibility and independence of network infrastructure. It‟s a challenging task compared to conventional network because of its unique characteristics such as dynamic network topology, limited bandwidth and limited battery power. There are several efficient routing protocols have been proposed for MANET. These are efficient, but in the presence of malicious node there are vulnerable to various kinds of attacks. In this article, we compare the various routing protocols present in MANET and various attacks in the existing MANET protocols.
